Obituary of Betty Muir (nee Drinkwater)
Elizabeth “Betty” Joan Lucie Muir (nee Drinkwater) In her 93rd year, Betty passed peacefully at Lanark Lodge, Perth, Ontario. Many thanks to nurse Alma, who was with Betty in her final moments. The staff were wonderful and Dr. Taylor Ferrier’s kindness will be remembered. Betty was born in Smooth Rock Falls, Ontario, but, spent most of her childhood in Smiths Falls. Betty’s favourite past-time was visiting with friends. It didn’t matter what Betty was doing, if you stopped by, you were always welcome and there was always lots of chocolate and laughs. Betty enjoyed sharing her hope of a resurrection in Jehovah’s ‘new system’, John 5: 28, 29.
